current version of an agreement with iran and one of the concerns that was expressed by the french was that the agreement narrowed the differences but did not infect eliminate them one of the comments made by the french foreign minister was that font's did not want to be part of what he called a con game the important point however to make is that iran is and was ready to strike a deal the big obstacle appears to be the future of iran's plutonium reactor which is that iraq which could provide a nother route for a nuclear weapons program this facility which is currently being built is due to become operational mixture the french may also be concerned that iran is trying to speed up the start up to date whether iraq is a groundbreaker is certainly still not clear but it is part of the major stumbling block as to why the talks failed these past few days the talks are due to resume in ten days time. well let's take a closer look at the main negotiation point well powers want iran to hold all

activities to enrich uranium at twenty percent they could then permit enrichment at a level below weapons grade now iran should also limit the number of centrifuges and allow more monitoring of its facilities in return for the un freezing of terror assets and the easing of sanctions well a former adviser to iran's nuclear negotiation team cover. believes tehran has demonstrated it is ready to negotiate in good faith but was the singular contribution of the french government to throw some monkey wrench in the process and managed to sabotage the deal basically there's a very strong pro israel lobbying in paris. as of course the relations between paris and tel aviv there is no doubt in anyone's mind that dealing with good intentions with a detailed proposal and prove their good faith in their negotiations is nor died in
1:05 pm
my man and minds of a lot of other people including millions in iran that a lot of the responsibility for the absence of a deal tonight rests on the shore of the french government in the latest round of talks international mediators were ready to release about three billion dollars worth of frozen iranian assets and lift restrictions on gold and the chemical and car industries experts say the sanctions are taking a toll not only on iran but on those imposing them to. u.s. and french company is are in the starting blocks there are banking on the lifting of sanctions and they want to resume trade with iran for obvious economic reasons like for example the car manufacturer to jacques major french car company is really just start a business so it's pushing for a new agreement. hopes were high ahead of these nuclear talks with iran's new president hassan rouhani adopting a softer stance than his predecessor. but

hard line conservatives back home and off the top happy with attempts to engage with the u.s. as we find out in our report coming up later in the program. but first britain is operating a listening post in the heart of the german capital allegedly targeting the parliament and the chancellor's office and revelations based on leaked documents hit a raw nerve in berlin which is already trying to get proper explanations from the u.s. over its tapping of angela merkel's phone what it's believed the eavesdropping equipment isn't stored right here on the roof of the u.k. embassy within a stone's throw of the bundestag it's allegedly capable of intercepting phone calls on long distance communications all across the city when he demanded explanations from london pointing out that intercepting data in diplomatic buildings is a violation of international law but the u.k. simply said it won't comment on intelligence matters or of

a gemstone both from the german pirate party says burnin actually knew its allies were listening in the german government of course did notice what was happening on the roof top of the u.s. embassy and the u.k. embassy because it's clear for everybody who looks at that building what's going on there but i think that the german interior secret service they are not allowed to investigate on the las and this is simply because germany right now is a subclass partner of the b. of the us and they want to become a first class partner so our government is simply selling our privacy and their own privacy to climb up the ladder. in the face of america's far reaching surveillance program hardly any tech company cannot guarantee one hundred percent privacy but what is more important that the owner of a small provider who has so far managed to prevent government spying. inside it over the data center and here we're taking an exclusive tour through one of the few

data companies standing up to the u.s. government in the name of privacy i think we do residential access very well pete ashdown is the owner of x. mission an independent internet service provider based in salt lake city utah this tower here handles most of our unlike most power players in silicon valley x. mission refuses to give the n.s.a. backdoor access to its networks since nine hundred ninety eight its mission has rejected a judge in the u.s. government for more information stored on private servers like these we don't share our information about our customers if you don't have a warrant the majority of law enforcement requests ashdown says he's received and refused have been subpoenaed as lacking accountability and necessary approval by a judge this is actually an amiga since launching his company in one thousand nine hundred three ashdown says he's filled no more than two customer data requests from
1:09 pm
the federal government make sure your funds the current climate of america's unrestrained surveillance matrix has been facilitated by corporations who have spent years secretly working with the n.s.a. regulation government contracts and. monetary compensation are in my opinion the three reasons why they're cooperating ironically utah is probably the most unlikely home for a privacy champion roughly twenty seven miles away from x. mission. is the n.s.a.'s newly constructed one point five billion dollar data center i think it's a stain on the tech industry of utah all the n.s.a. activities are a stain on american internet businesses ashdown has vowed to face jail time if that's what's needed to protect his customers from being monitored what surprises this fourth amendment advocate is that big data companies like google won't promise

a geo to be or not to be shot it's also a forty five square mile military base with no plans of going anywhere full of signs of the stablished american life it is a navy base and we just happened to have the camps in here home to the only mcdonald's on cuban soil a subway sandwich shop a starbucks and a taco bell you got busted vested financial interests that you got pizza starbucks and. all of these other places that helped to set up a logistical support for the troops over the there are about five and a half thousand people living and working on the base roughly half serve the actual detention center the u.s. government has been leasing this territory since one thousand nine hundred three for just over forty five hundred dollars curiously that is still the price today but it's said that the cuban government has been refusing to accept this money for decades the castro government said you know we don't want this lease anymore in the united states' position was that it's a binding lease and in the lease it actually says that it can't be broken unless
1:16 pm
both sides both countries agree to that that strikes me as a very odd contract servant territory that the u.s. has occupied against cuba's wishes since one thousand fifty nine most officers come here for short term of up to nine months or longer deployment of two to three years far from home life isn't put on hold and you can't date certain people wait and certainly have if it's away from your like rank system then you're allowed to you know there's the don't tell me see i'm an open air movie theater playing all the hottest hollywood blockbusters and it ticky bar to let loose after a hard day's work even though most say schedules aren't that intense anyway we actually get quite a bit of time off like a decent man and we go to the beach and of year as our activities for people to do m.w. are stands for morale welfare and recreation. almost every sport known to man is available to team get well on state of the art facilities. i love it it's a lot of people think there's not much to do but there's definitely an abundance to

do. being in a remote location doesn't even have to affect eating habits an all you can eat lunch costs just under five bucks and breakfast is half that price a downside though information or lack thereof or just a lot of the t.v. programs broadcasting here are army focused. and internet is almost nonexistent the beast dubbed no stream a stand by some soldiers even so we're told those serving here are banned from looking at websites like wiki leaks for example once classified always classified. even if the information has long been made public there are other strict regulations in place to fun fact about guantanamo apparently a life of an costs here a little more than a life of a detainee if you run one of these babies over the fine is ten thousand dollars. there's a very strict speed limit in guantanamo and it's a very slow speed limit and people say that that's that's all about the quantised
1:18 pm
somewhat ironic at a place marred by human rights scandals officials make a point of showing journalists how well prisoners two are kept and thirteen here when i wanted to call so for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books have a piece here some head and shoulder shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time who's going to the other side so you can see the books detainees can't come in here but the prisoner library lovingly displays the best of their art for t.v. crews to see a lot of pre-selected books to avoid certain topics violence sexual and religious stuff controversy shelves packed with magazines d.v.d.'s and video games plenty of ways for legit prisoners of war to pass the indefinite time they're kept here without charges. or party guantanamo bay cuba. egypt's topos president

mohamed morsi along with fourteen muslim brotherhood members went on trial on monday only to see proceedings postponed until january the eighth asked adidas facing charges of encouraging a deadly crackdown on dissent in cairo last december now this footage is from the opening of the hearings the first video of mohammed morsy since his arrest four months ago he refused to wear the military white uniform for defendants and rejected the court's authority insisting he's still the country's legitimate leader during his transfer to prison police were confronted by angry probe morsy mobs in the capital and other cities and he's been true gauge public opinion on the prosecution of egypt's first democratically elected president. is known as the singer of the revolution the popularity of his pro-democracy song saw him badly tortured by the military and now despite fighting to bring down both hosni mubarak and mohamed morsi romney has little hope for egypt's future as morsi
1:20 pm
goes on trial for incitement to kill protesters packing for the revolutionaries and now in the worst scenario we have ever been since two thousand and eleven morsi should be tried but it's comic that mubarak trial should be held up at every turn while the morsy trial is moving along so fast what shocks me is that the authorities never seem to have the will to push through the court cases of remnants of the former regime tahrir square once the heartbeat of the revolution has become just another busy roundabout in two thousand and eleven and two thousand and thirteen people came here demanding bread freedom and social justice but after the military ousted mr brotherhood president mohamed morsy hundreds have been killed and thousands arrested eating some to fear the freedoms and justice will never become a reality admits this violence rights groups have little faith that the trial of mr morsi and other mr brotherhood leaders will be fair that's coming at a time when there is a general crackdown against a brotherhood a very selective prosecutions on the part of the justices. looking only at
1:21 pm
brotherhood members with impunity for security services meanwhile the retrial of egypt's other ousted president hosni mubarak drags on the feeling the security operators continues to shape court decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict the military is entrenched in its own influence and its own interest again and again the problem now that we need to sit down and agree on a specific route of transitional justice either we're trying everyone on meaningful we're taking the road to the south africa bureau and many many of them but this talk of evil speech and that seems far away as pro morsi protests and clashes with security forces continue to rock the nation the fear is morsi is trial will not deliver much did justice to egypt the brothers set the stage for further instability and turmoil. for r t cairo. well with the latest round of talks over iran's nuclear program failing to secure progress president has said to iran will not bow to international pressure and give

over three thousand dollars or up for grabs for the winner there will be a prize for the best idea to mark death of america which will renew the concept of death to america because of the arrogance of america the message is clear for as long as the us policies are hostile to us we will continue to use the slogan. while the slogan first came to prominence during the one nine hundred seventy nine iranian revolution the u.s. backed government was overthrown and since then it's been widely used. those critics now favor hollies willingness to reengage with the u.s. could undermine the revolution they also see no reason to start to play misty with a country that for years has portrayed iran as the enemy and subject of the country to harsh economic sanctions over its nuclear program states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil this administration has systematically

imposed the toughest sanctions on iraq on iran ever the united states is not going to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very verifiable accountable transparent process is in place despite efforts by the us government to suggest the sanctions aren't affecting the general population food clothes and even basic medicines have rocketed in price in recent years on the leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to anti american slogans and banners appearing all over tehran in recent weeks with rouhani demanding many be taken down. ati. well we've got plenty of stories for you on our website including collision course a motorist inventor rick scott something of a medieval surprise at a crossroads when an unexpected one vehicle slammed into his car watch the full video an obscene call. plus if you run out of

1:27 pm
printer at home while technology moves pretty quickly because british police have already busted in the legal armory pretty out firearm parts and special three d. printers this technology may make gun control literally impossible in the same way that banning and burning books has become futile and the past they used to be able to just burn books or forbid them from being printed but in the age of the internet all you need is a scanner and an internet connection and the information that's found in a book cannot be destroyed because it is out there on the magical ether of the air at so basically the near future any person with even half a brain and some patients could start making guns in their basement. which means that gun control laws will basically become pointless because they'll never be able to catch all the people doing it nor will be able to take the guns not even obama or the hardest of hardcore liberals this technology could be the best thing to happen to the second amendment ever but i shushed my opinion.
